It's not as much of a knee jerk reaction as you might think. First let's get some things out of the way. 1. Parcells is still arguably the greatest football coach of all time. But just because he is the best coach of all time, it doesn't necessarily mean he is the best for this team. 2. I too am amazed by what Parcells accomplishes with the little talent we have on offense. At the same time, he is responsible for what little talent we have on offense. 3. You can still respect the job Parcells has done but desire another head coach. Parcells has not been a failure. He has not repeated Dave Campo's mistakes. At the same time, I don't like the direction the team is heading. You get that sense that this team is being built toward being a contender. And I said this at the end of last season. Parcells doesn't want to develop this team the right way. He still relies too much on older veterans and that has cost us in terms of developing younger talent on offense. I was like all of you. I was sick of Dave Campo. I blamed him and his lack of discipline for our three 5-11 seasons. However, I also realize that Parcells was not the right hire for this team because he wants to win now. I can't blame him. That's what he was hired to do. And given his age, can you blame for wanting to go with veterans like Bledsoe versus taking your chances with an unknown rookie? But that is precisely my point, he wasn't a right hire for our team given our situation. We really need a coach who is patient and willing to start over and develop this team from scratch. We need a coach who we can say with some sense of certainty that he will stay with this team in the long term. Will we be better next year? Probably Will we contend for a championship? No And the reason for that is simple, Parcells isn't willing to start over. He is still going to rely on his veterans instead of going with younger talent. If we want to do this right, we have to start over. We have to wipe the slate clean even if that means we endure a losing season or two. We need a coach who is willing to develop a team over the course of 5 years or so and build this team properly from the ground up instead of adopting a veteran/band aid philosophy.
